I do have my heart set on the beach wedding, that is the main reason I chose to have a destination wedding. I want the sand in my toes. So the photographer and WC should be able to keep the people at a reasonable distance if asked?

Once people see a wedding their general reaction is to crowd around. The WC when setting up the area will pull chairs back to a certain point, and they sometimes assign guards to usher people by at the beach by in my experience the guards just tend on holding a crowd there. During the actual wedding the WC will not ask people to step back or go away or anything because they are actively involved in the ceremony.

I can only speak for myself as a photographer but I am way too busy taking photos to ask people to step away or leave because they are unsightly.

The truth is - its a busy beach and if you choose to have it at that location there will be people watching. Some will be in swimsuits, some will be topless etc. If you have the ceremony at say 5 or 6 pm there will be less people on the beach.

Once you are there I suggest going to check out another wedding and if you don't like the amount of people they will switch it to the Gazebo for you.

This is not something that is exclusive to the Majestic, basically any beach ceremony at any resort will have the same problem.

good point. I guess i'll just go expecting it; but at the same time just ignore the people. HOpefully they will have enough common courtesy to not come to close...especially if they are topless! I'll be having my dream of getting married on the beach; and that will be the only thing that matters!

That is definitely the right attitude to have. I have had a couple brides ask me beforehand to get a shot of a guy in a speedo in the background with them in the foreground if I can. They found it funny.

Dinner I believe can start at 6:30...but not 100% sure. I know 7 definitely because that's what I am doing. 3pm is a fine time but realize the beach is very crowded still at that time. If you are 100% fine and can tune everyone out then go for it. The WC do not block people from getting close so realize video/pics could have a lot of beach goers in them. If this is not ok go for a later time because I know you said the beach is your dream wedding spot. Otherwise everything will be perfect and beautiful!

are you getting married on the beach?

 

I wanted to do a little later....4 or 5 but she told me 3 was the only time they had for that week!! I can't believe it fills up that fast! Does anyone know where on the beach you are married? Is it set off to the side a little?

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
